A little while ago Gail Z Martin, author of the Necromancer series, interviewed me for a podcast. It’s available here.
(With thanks to Eleni for fixing the link!).
I can’t listen to it because I can’t bear to listen to myself. LoL
The wonderful thing about being a writer (apart from doing something you love) is meeting fellow writers. Sometimes you read their books before you get to meet them. I met George RR Martin at the Glasgow World Con and suffered one of those embarrassing ‘fan girl’ moments where I gushed madly about how I loved his books. And other times you meet them, then read their books. This creates a strange dissonance because you can hear their ‘voice’ in your head as you read. This happened with Maxine McArthur for me. I met her at Aussie Con 3.
Today I want to thank three writers. When Solaris emailed me asking if there was someone who could do a testimonial on book one of King Rolen’s Kin, I madly emailed a couple of writing colleagues. Trudi Canavan (knitter, manga fan and writer) was able to squeeze mybook in her crazy schedule.
Jennifer Fallon was scrambling to pack all her belongings and move from Australia to New Zealand, but she was such a trooper, she agreed to read the book and give me a quote.
I ‘d never met Gail Z Martin but I had read her books. When Solaris bought my trilogy I ordered all their fantasy books and read them to familiarise myself with the publisher. (I’m such a girly swot!). So, when Solaris said they were asking Gail to read my book I was thrilled.
So there you have it, 3 great writers,supporting a fellow writer!
